Turon receives scholarship
The Community College of Rhode Island recently selected Victoria Turon of Jamestown as the recipient of the 2007 Cooperative Education Scholarship.
The $310 award provides financial support to students who have demonstrated the ability to relate their work environment to their academic environment. Each year, the college's Office of Career Placement and Cooperative Education donates revenue generated from CCRI's Career Expo to the scholarship. The Community College of Rhode Island, New England's largest comprehensive community college, enrolls more than 16,000 students in credit courses and thousands more in non-credit and job training classes. CCRI has campuses in Warwick, Lincoln, Providence and Newport County, as well as satellite locations in downtown Providence and Westerly.
